I can apply this patch as a workaround, but I see that you already
applied the same thing upstream in libiscsi?

And indeed, I think this is a bug in libiscsi.  You make the socket
nonblocking (on POSIX only; but you can do the same ffor Win32, please
see the code in qemu to set the FIONBIO ioctls), but then you do not
handle EAGAIN.  Furthermore, you confuse read returning 0 (end-of-data)
with read returning EAGAIN (no data available).  If you fix this, all
the things you do with FIONREAD are not necessary.  See the attached
patch, compile-tested only.
